Twin car bombs kill Syrian rebels in deadly rivalry with al Qaeda linked fighters

Two car bombs have killed at least sixteen people at a rebel-held post on the Syrian border with Turkey. The bombs went off within ten minutes of each other.

The Bab al-Hawa crossing is held by a rebel alliance called the Islamic Front which has been confronting al Qaeda linked foreign fighters in the region.

More than 1,000 rebels have died in clashes between rival groups in the last three weeks.

The upsurge of violence has weakened the nearly three-year-old armed campaign to topple President Bashar al-Assad.

It was not immediately clear who had planted Monday’s bombs. It’s thought six of the dead were Islamist fighters the rest were civilians.
